Sony DSC-W830

 

At CES 2014, Sony announced its latest compact zoom Cyber-shot digital camera, the DSC-W830. While it may feature 20.1 effective megapixels like the other camera mentioned today, the α5000, this W830 only features a Super HAD CCD image sensor, which...

Sony W830 Review

 

With the Cyber-shot W830, Sony answers the consumer photographer on a tight budget who still needs a reasonably generous zoom range and extremely high resolution -- on paper, at least, as we've not yet put the camera through our lab to test real-world...

Available from February 2014 in silver, pink, or black-bodied versions, the Sony W830 is priced at US$120 or thereabouts, a slight $20 less than last year's model.

Sony Cyber-shot W830

 

The Sony Cyber-shot W830 is a mid-range point-and-shoot compact with an 8x optical zoom and 20.1 Megapixel CCD sensor. Introduced into the Cyber-shot range at the beginning of 2014, the W830 has a 2.7 inch screen and can shoot 720p HD video. It lacks...

8x stabilised optical zoom ; 360 degree Sweep Panorama ; Dedicated movie mode ; In-camera battery charging

Fiddly shutter release ; Lacklustre screen with narrow vertical viewing angle ; No Wifi

The Sony W830 is an uncomplicated proposition. It's a competitivitely priced ultra compact with an 8x zoom lens. There are models with bigger zooms, but they tend to come with bigger bodies and higher price tags. And there are more fully featured...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 is a budget compact point-and-shoot camera with a 25-200 mm (8x) optical zoom and 20Mp resolution. It's slim, lightweight and highly portable, with a reasonable flash and monitor screen. But can it take good pictures, or...

Sony Cyber-shot W830 Reader Review

 

We speak to Ben Waller who's been shooting with the Sony Cyber-shot W830, a budget camera with a 20mp sensor and 8x optical zoom.

The Sony Cyber-shot W830 doesn't feature Wi-Fi and other connectivity options but is one of the cheapest compact cameras with optical image stabilisation. In good weather, the camera produces images with bright saturated colours, and images will look...

Our new Comic Con cam

 

This is replacing our coolpix that we took to Comic cons for 2 years and was dropped a lot. We were just looking a camera to use other then our phones and trade shows. So we will see how it goes.

Small and Good pictures. Well good enough for us, I'm not really a camera guy

None that I can think of

Picture Quality is tricky

 

Bottom line: the quality of this camera is low end with poor picture taking capabilities and not worth the cost!

The size

Bad idea to use this camera if you want to capture special moments! It takes horrible pictures. They are blurry and by the time you focus in on your shot, the moment is gone. The quality of all pics leans on the side of blurry. Even when the shot...

Got Refurbished Product

 

The customer service at Newegg is not very keen in helping resolve the issue when faced with issue or problem instead they quickly resort to RMA and refund etc., not realizing that their customers are the one that will be unhappy when returning the...

Sony Cybershot w830-DSC is a great Camera. However I received mine refurbished instead of brand new.

Be careful as mine came in as refurbished and also came in without battery and when complained to Newegg they refused to help instead they issued RMA and in the end time wasted. I should have ordered mine from somewhere at least I would got brand new...
